at this point seeing how the sequester is going to be limiting our military capacity in the next couple of weeks and next couple of months. no. i think it was nice rhetoric by barack obama, but we've much more important things to be looking at. we have to make sure iran doesn't get a nuclear weapon, we have to make sure the two-state solution doesn't disappear in israel. whether or not the syrian government in the beginning of their civil war was using chemical weapons doesn't need to be a priority right now. >> for once i agree with the president, laying the marker down. the united states of america has never sat on the sidelines when people have created this type of chaos against their own people so i think certainly senator mccain and senator graham along with the president have laid a marker down what is proper and right. this is a serious thing. when people use chemical weapons against themselves, what else will they use against their neighbors. i think the president was correct, he was right, it's very serious and something that should concern the american public. we're certainly weary of

are on the fence? >> this is a political red herring. oh, this week it's michael bloomberg and it used to be nancy pelosi and it used to be barack obama. you can use all the scary liberal names, but the reality on the ground, police who don't tend to vote democratic, even police are in favor of what the mayors are suggesting. michael bloomberg maying t be t face, but he's speaking for mayors there cleveland, from detroit, from indianapolis. mayors who are saying i need a different way for congress to respond to this particular problem. so i don't think the fact that bloomberg's name is on it won't cause problems. it might raise attention toward the issue. >> patrick, more than one police chief, they're all for background checks. the nra is fighting back against these ads dollar for dollar. so do you think it's just a little nervous? >> i don't know who is more nervous. if there was such an overwhelming public ground swell of support for this type of thing, bloomberg wouldn't be worried about putting these ads. the other thing is that people keep demonizing the nra and wayne lapierre and i'll be th
? the presiding officer: the republican whip. mr. wiern mr. cornyn: madam president,, president obama recently told the speaker of the house of representatives that we don't have a spending problem. last week, he told abc news that we don't have an immediate crisis in terms of the debt. these comments indicate that the president just does not seem to understand the negative impact of $16.5 trillion in debt on our economy. for that matter, based on their new budget, senate democrats don't seem to get it, either. not only would the budget that was passed out of the senate budget committee last week raise taxes by an additional $1.5 trillion, i it would also increase federal spending by roughly 60% and increase our national debt by $7.3 trillion. i should say as bad as it is, that budget that was passed out of the budget committee last week represents progress. now, how could i possibly say that? well, because it's been 1,419 days since the senate has passed a budget under democrat control. so i guess you could say passing a budget out of the budget committee and having it come to the floor this
? the big story the last couple of weeks has been sequestration. it's failed and supposed to be written in a way that guaranteed a compromise. the idea behind obama care when it kamed to medicaid it would write a law so attract and they couldn't turn it down. a lot of debate about that. i think they have turned out to be validated in that. most of them are now starting to come around. >> michelle bachmann is a supporter of it? in florida you got one party in tallahassee. >> but it also shows you the republican divide. a republican governor who understands the economics, the need to govern and get these people health care in the kind of ideal log in his own party and know they will not do this. >> rick scott has to run statewide and you're looking at a million plus people who could get health insurance because of his decision. but it's not a problem if you're a governor who has got to think about election in a few years. >> no. it will help him an awful lot. but i tell you what, if you are a state rep up from where i'm from. >> totally different. >> somebody says, hey, you want to suppor
in new york. he was in connecticut a couple of weeks ago, one town over from the town. newtown. every time president obama gives a speech, he brings up newtown. they see this as critical in making the american public wants gun measures. the: how much power does vice president have and what does that show in the priority list of the white house? guest: unless there is a tie, he can be a tiebreaker. this is helping to frame the debate. trying to build public support around the country and pressure lawmakers to make them feel like this is of the they have a moral obligation to do. that is a word he and the president use a lot. every week that goes by, he is having a speech that has to do with guns. he is making this a centerpiece on his agenda. they see this as a critical part of the second term, the domestic agenda. host: if you would like to talk with our guest, here are the numbers -- host: we are focusing on the politics of the gun control debate. west virginia, independent. orler: this gun ban background checks is not going to curb or stop anything. anybody that wants a gun can get

through committee was driven by people to the left of president obama. i know this, last year the chairman of the budget committee, kent conrad, was prepared to bring a budget to the floor. my staff and i, we spent weeks preparing for the markup. they met in the democratic conference, and some of the more liberal members hollered that they couldn't accept kent conrad's budget, the democratic budget he was going to set forth. and so they basically refused to let him mark up a budget in the budget committee and refused to bring it to the floor of the united states senate, even though the united states law called for the budget committee to have a hearing and called for a bill to be brought to the floor. and just refused to do it in violation of plain law. so the "wall street journal" said the bill manages the unique achievement of offering no net non-defense spending cuts and no entitlement reform worth the name while proposing to raise $1.5 trillion in new tax revenue in such a way that would ruin the prospects for bipartisan tax reform. let me stop right there. our colleagues keep saying w
the privilege of having dinner with the president a couple weeks ago. i found it very interesting that president obama accurately described the problem in reforming medicare. he said, the problem is that americans pay in $1 but they get $3 worth of benefits. he also went on to say, we've got a problem because most americans don't understand that. well, today i'm asking on the president, i'm asking members on the other side of the aisle to join with republicans to honestly describe the problem to the american public. i mean, you don't solve a problem until you first define it and then, secondly, admit that you have the problem. we have severe problems with social security, with medicare, with other mandatory spending, with other budget. until we come to terms with that, until we are honest with the american people, stop pulling the wool over their ey eyes, we have no chance whatsoever of solving these very severe problems. so with that, i yield back my time, mr. president. ms. stabenow: mr. president? the presiding officer: the senator from michigan. ms. stabenow: thank you, mr. president. i'll b
's what president obama was saying. that struck me, especially his use of ariel sharone's quote. the other interesting thing was he mentioned passover that's coming up next week, and he talked about the story of passover and what was important about that is he was talking about the ancient centuries old claim of jews to the holy land. a lot of arabs do not believe that israel has any right to be there, so it's very important to israelis and jews who support israel that there be some sort of context of a historical claim to the land. those were very interesting moments, i thought. >> jake, i want to switch gears here. a little bit awkward, but you just sat down with jimmy kimmel, who's about to get a new late night rival. anything -- what's going on here? >> well, it's interesting. we went to l.a. and sat down with jimmy kimmel. there are now reports they've been brewing for several weeks, that jimmy fallon will replace jay leno when his contract is up in 2014. i asked him about it, if we have that clip. >> already there's talk about mr. leno's departure, although i've read those stories be

" friday night of this week at 9:00. the documentary sheds light on the manipulated intelligence that got us into iraq. unfortunately we have not learned from all we lost in iraq. as president obama has also committed us to an additional 10 years in afghanistan, thanks to a strategic security agreement he made without congress voting on it or even debating it. this weekend i read two articles that really spoke to the corruption happening in afghanistan. one was an a.p. article i read in my hometown paper titled "u.s. helicopter crashes in afghanistan killing one" and the other is from "the new york times" titled "afghans protest u.s. special forces: complaints about night rage spark calls for withdrawal." i'll quote from the first article. the crash has come as united states officials are grappling with tough talk from president karzai whose recent anti-american rhetoric has complicated relations at a time when international troops are withdrawing from the war. the article continues saying, karzai stated this week by accusing the united states and the taliban of being in conclusion on two
will stay open for a week if anyone would like to submit initial statements or questions. the meeting is adjourned. thank you all. unconfirmed reports accuse the syrian government of using chemical weapons against rebel fighters. president obama commented on these reports during his trip to israel. >> with respect to chemical weapons, we intend to investigate thoroughly exactly what happens. obviously syria right now you have a war zone. you have information that is filtered out, but we have to make sure that we know exact to what happened, what was the nature of the incident, what can we document and what can we prove so i've instructed my teams to work closely with all of the countries in the region and international organizations and institutions to find out precisely whether or not this red line was crossed. i will note without at this point having all the facts before me, that we know the syrian government has the capacity to carry out chemical weapons acts. we know that there aren't those in the syrian government who have expressed a willingness to use chemical weapons if necess
